Matt Rutherford: single handed around the Americas
Red Dot on the Ocean - Trailer from TheSailingChannelTV on Vimeo.
Nearly a year ago Matt Rutherford sailed into the Chesapeake Bay to complete an epic single handed sail around the Americas.
The 23,000 mile voyage took him just around a year, in which he sailed through the North West passage and then South to the legendary Cape Horn.
I've only just heard about the story and seen the clip above of a film being made about it but would like to know more.
Luckily Matt is coming over to the UK to give a talk to the Ocean Cruising Club, and hopefully I'll be able to trek over to Docklands to hear about it first hand.
